Availability: In stock
Cobra painting paste is a colorless medium that can be mixed with water mixable oil paint in any ratio. The paste is as thick as the paint and could therefore be described as a water mixable oil paint without any pigment.Cobra painting paste has various uses: Increasing the amount of paint: Painting paste can be mixed with water mixable oil paint in any ratio. For example for impasto techniques (applying pure paint in thick strokes with a painting knife) using the more expensive colors you can increase the amount of paint without there being any color difference. The more paste you add, the more transparent the paint becomes; depending on the type of pigment, however, this will not or hardly be visible in thicker layers. Decreasing the color intensity: The color intensity of the paint will decrease as more painting paste is added. This may be particularly important with the alla prima (wet-on-wet) technique when mixing colors with a highly divergent color intensity with one another in the painting. By adding more painting paste to a stronger color this will become less prominent.
